Good read on LA Marathon

As I said, some bloggers wrote much more interesting accounts of the LA marathon than I did. Here's another good (and funny one) one, by the Punk Rock Runner. He's good on the Oakland marathon also.


Here's the only race photo of me taken by my daughter near the finish.

And specially for Ewen, who for some unknown reason, thinks that arm warmers are "girly" despite the fact that many top male marathoners in Japan and the US wear them (you want to try telling that to this dude?):


  1. I'm a follower of Ron "Punk Rock Racing" and I emailed him asking him to check up on you and say hi from me. He said he would if you waited around long enough for him to finish. Did you talk to him?

    The reason Ewen thinks they are "girly" is only because I sometimes wear them and he likes giving me grief, yes innocent me, for some unknown reason!!!

  2. I was going to say Ewen is "Girly" but everyone knows he is such a "Chicked Magnet" so I won't!

  3. No, I didn't talk to him and I also missed the Dirt Diva who was cheering on the course. If I had seen her, I would have stopped and told her I am a big fan.

  4. Bob, my biker aunty will tell that dude... and then rip his bloody arms off!

    Scott, they're girly because you don't see Bruce Willis wearing them when he's saving the free world in Die Hard 4.

    At least in the fat part of the field I get to see lots of running girls in tight spandex.

  5. sending you the two pics i took of you at LA...sorry...forgot to do it earlier!
